KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) confirmed that its Flight MH066 from Kuala Lumpur to Incheon, Seoul on Sunday was diverted to Hong Kong due to an inoperative aircraft generator.
MAS media relations manager Kharunnisak Dzun Nurin said in a statement on Monday that the Airbus A330-300 aircraft landed in Hong Kong "uneventfully".
Electrical power continued to be supplied by the auxiliary power unit, she said.
"The aircraft was then diverted to Hong Kong for rectification and landed uneventfully," she added.
MH066 left Kuala Lumpur at 11.37pm on Sunday and was scheduled to arrive at Incheon International Airport at 6.50am (5.50am local time) on Monday.
Kharunnisak said all the 271 passengers had been transferred to other carriers.
